Our present cities lack of fundamental basic human factors:
  • They are not affordable
  • They are rigid
  • They lack integration
  • They are confusing
  • They are mostly ill planned and lack livability.

Robert Solow, Nobel Prize-winning economist at MIT, puts it this way: "Livability is not some middle-class luxury. It is an economic imperative."

Why UD at the urban scale?

  • To function universally, UD must be implemented at different scales
  • The urban scale is the big container of all disparities and equalities of our daily life
  • The city must be ergonomically and universally designed to work for, and not against, everybody’s human basic needs
  • Urban planning and city management have yet to address such issues while urban environments are rapidly declining toward confusion, disorder, and inequality.

With the implementation of UD:

  • Mix of uses facilitates short range activities
  • Integration with public transit provides sustainable alternatives to driving
  • Different housing typologies within the same neighborhood allows wider ranges in pricing
  • The overwhelming desire to age in place becomes reality

A more integrated consumption of space

homogeneity and confusion vs view finding through landmarks
Homogeneity and confusion vs. View finding through landmarks

Spaces are for mobility, places instead are for pause

Low Physical Effort

  • Basic needs are close by and handy
  • Pedestrian and bicycle paths allow healthier lifestyles
  • Urban design promotes social interactions
  • Personal independence is maintained or supported at feasible costs
